I made this for my nephew for Christmas, he is 2-1/2 yrs old.  The back of the aquarium is a fabric collage made from a remnant, a bunch of froufrou yarns, and some velcro "waves" for the fish to stick to, covered in tulle.  The little fish are made from upholstery samples with velcro fins.  The hook portion of the velcro is on the backing and the fins have the soft loop velcro in case my nephew decides to chew them or something.  It's all housed inside a sturdy MacBook box with a handle, which I'll be covering with an ocean scene but I don't have that part done yet :-)

Your nephew will love it - it's great!  My son just said 'ooh, fish!', when he saw the computer screen (he's almost 2).

That is SO cool!  I would have loved something like that when I was little.  Smiley 

Sort of along the same line, my mom's best friend made a baby quilt for me with a bunch of little pockets of different colored and patterned material.  Each pocket had a corresponding little teddy bear to play with.  I was so in to ocean stuff, even at that age, that I don't think I would have been able to put a stuffed aquarium down!

That type of interactive toy is so awesome!  Great job, and I love your choice of background.   It looks gorgeous.  Your nephew is a lucky kiddo.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
